Questions to "Think Aloud" as You Prepare Lessons:
~ Students: What are the academic, social, physical, personal, and emotional needs of my students?
~ Strategies: Which teaching strategies will best facilitate my students learning?
~ Grouping: Should I group heterogeneously or homogeneously? What size should my groups be?
~ Timing: When is the best time to do this lesson? Are there prerequisites my students should have mastered?
~ Materials: What materials and human resources do I need for the lesson to be successful?
~ Success: Was the lesson successful? Were my students interested? Did my students learn? What didn`t work? What will I do differently next time?
~ Sequence: What can I do next to build upon this lesson? How can I make it flow?
~ Rationale: What is the reason for doing this? What objectives will be accomplished?
Consider making a copy or two of each week`s plan. I used to take one copy home and place others at key areas in my classroom so I could leave my actual lesson-plan book on my desk at all times, available for the principal. This also allowed me to work at home on preparing materials for upcoming lessons and on planning for the following week without fear of misplacing my lesson book!
